God first in line when only think I am doing today is in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My name is Brian Thomas is always a joy to jointly delete I want to thank you for tuning in one of the primary missions of this program is to proclaim the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We look at the Bible.

The Bible tells us what would be the signs will be the condition of the world prior to our Lord's return and when I look around today. I see events I see conditions unfolding just as the Bible said it would. And so it is our desire to wake up the most to get those who have not received Jesus as Lord and Savior to accept Jesus Christ today because a day of judgment is coming if you reject him, and for those who have already received our Lord, we try to get you to be excited to look forward to and to be eager about our Lord's return for the church. So today I want to share with you a special sermon that really resonated with me and it is my prayer that it will resonate with you as well. In light of the days that we are living in the messages from Dr. Tim, Todd, and it is titled what you you are left behind. So without further delay. Let us join Dr. Tim thought before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until that day that Noah entered into.

They are in no not until the flood came and took them all away, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. Then felt to be in the field. The one shall be taken and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill. But one shall be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you know not what our your Lord doth come. I want to focus the spotlight of your attention this morning on versus 40 and 40 1 AM Michelle told me in the field, but one shall be taken and the other left to women shall be grinding at the mail one shall be taken and the other left. My question to you and the fame of the message that God is like burning a heart for they are this morning is this what will you do if you're the one who's left behind what you know if your left behind when Jesus comes.

Now there's a lot of awful things that can happen you and me in this lifetime admitted you have experienced some of the tragedies.

Think about you can both hurricane or a flood or tornado you can go through a divorce or bankruptcy. You can lose your job you could lose your best friend you can have all kinds of health problems, stroke and cancer or heart attack. You can lose a loved one to death. There are many things that can happen to you and me that caused tears and heartache chaos in trouble but nothing that I can think of that can happen to urinate in this lifetime Jesus palms that young man young girl about it. Mr. lady, and that this more people are going to be left behind. Then will be taken. That's hard for a lot of people to accept because the popular gospel in America goes like this almost everybody's going to happen… And he won't send you to hell. It is true that God is a good.a man is full of love and mercy and embrace, but are good. God does not send you to hell you go about your own choice you make your own decision targeting your Bible from Matthew seven versus 13 and 14 and I will prove to you according to the word of God. Most people are not going to happen, but in fact, most people are going to hell what you're turning there'll back it up in the Old Testament. You remember a lot in his two daughters were saved all of the Sodom and Gomorrah lost. You remember Noah and his family of seven were saved the entire world was lost.

You remember Joshua and Caleb made it into the promised land. A charge of 3 million people were left behind.

Look at Matthew seven versus 13 and 14. Even the slight date. Why is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and in a NY said that word with me. Manny said again many many there be that go in thereat. Most people are going to hell. Verse 14 says, but sprite is the date and now is the road that leads to life, and few few there be that find it. You people are going to have in Proverbs 1412 says there is a way that seems right into a man but the end thereof are the ways of half eternal – there are many people that are on the road that helps to think on the road to heaven.

There are many people who are lost think there's I was on my way home from a revival and I stopped to get gasoline and there was a man thinking about the gas pumps. Why start a witness in time, I said Sir you'd like to go to heaven when you die.

He said both. Of course I will. I said what do you think you go to heaven he scratched his head and he thought about that he said well he said I pay my bills and I've got a lot of friends in this community that like me would you like to try to get to heaven on that ticket because you pay your bills and you got friends in the community, but this is the main talent take many people who think they're going to heaven because God's a good dog and God's merciful God.

Now that only nursing.

To me this morning you will be left behind unless you know the Lord Jesus. The fact that Jesus came the first time is proof that is, the second time, but I doubt that Jesus came the first time. In fact, there is more evidence that Jesus has walked on this earth.

Then there is that George Washington] Lincoln walked on this earth. Nobody doubts that they came but there's more evidence that Jesus has been here then there is that George Washington is been here in the very baselines of history and around the cradle of Jesus 2000 years ago a baby was born. That is so important, so extraordinary that we started marking time by his cradle. Now there's never been a baby like that atheists that don't believe in Jesus part-time eyes cradle figure that one out because every time you sign a check and put the date on it you are testifying to the fact that some, but not there about 2000 years ago, every time that you celebrate your birthday and all the birds back to a baby that is more talk about the second coming that we do even the first coming beside BC. That means before Christ.

A day or twice. There's never been a baby levitate some Frank 2000 years ago when Jesus came the first time they split the pages of history into comedy comes a second time.

Based on a split face start and stop playing way out to be just beside ourselves with the Lord's soon return lesson, we are closer to the Lord's return. Right now that anyone is ever Bambi said in John 14 let not your hearts be troubled you believe in God believe also in me. In my father's house there are many mansions that were not so I would've told you. I go to prepare a place for you and if I go to prepare a place for you. He said I will come again say those forwards with me. I will come again and receive myself. So the work there you may be also.

I believe is going to come again like he said do you believe it's going to sound An arrangement that had all the Lord is coming. First Thessalonians chapter 4 versus 16 through 18th.

This powerful and familiar passage of Scripture it says the Lord himself. I like that sound the same from heaven with a shout. I know a lot of people don't like shouting in church better get used to plan, the Bible says. When Jesus comes, he's coming with a shout and say well I just don't think all that noise in church is necessary. Besides, it just kinda makes me nervous. Better get over Frank… Norvasc, the Bible says. When Jesus comes.

He's got a time when I shout with a porch of an archangel in the trump of God that dad in Christ shall rise first. Then we that are alive and remain clubby, put them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. So shall we ever be with the Lord to take that comfort one another with these what words levitate some Frank 2000 years ago when Jesus came the first time they split the pages of history into comedy comes a second time.

Based on a split face start and stop Labbe, resetting here you got a loved one that is passed away that you know they are in heaven and God all of us do. I love to be spending next to the grave, and all this takes place when you buy me some nice graves look like freshly plowed ground with the Lord returns, how it's all going to take place. Neither do you.

Because you know that many people died at the oceans and seas. Many people been cremated and burned to death know how God is going to bring all of their bodies back together but I know this.is.we didn't do anything he wants to.

There's a lot of other things I don't understand, but I accept, appreciate and enjoy about you understand electricity in these bright lights. I don't understand the concept about. Guess what, I still flip the switch to turn the light on understand how television works and understand how to become a premier Los Angeles, California or New York City or halfway around the world that TV cameras take a picture go through the court. There top of a satellite come down and go through your cable cord and jump out a living, on your TV set. I don't understand how black, how can a green grass get white milk and yellow butter.

I don't know but I have including the butter had a quick drink when I think I'm single question electricity question television person the Internet are the cow for the butter or the milk question God. Mark Twain said something that stuck with me. He said that's not the things of the Bible, but I don't understand the bonhomie he said is the things of the Bible that I do understand that I do understand doing the Bible what you understand and God will help you the right stuff but I don't know how were going to defy gravity when the rapture takes like the Letson chart.

I'm ready to go. Can you imagine what it's come to be like when we go sweeping through the pearly white gates down the streets of gold, and were able to have the big parade the big processional and client glory to the lab for sinners flameproof on the foundations of the world. What an exciting time. It's got a big head and she says is going to be right in the middle about the light of the side of the moon because Jesus is thought to be the light of heaven and the noonday sun is our Lord and Savior. What about Jesus. I shall see what I looked up on his face.

Many things but by his grace that it takes me by the hand and leads me to the promise land for what I wanted my friend update always on the green hillsides of glory funeral trains in the sky that we know quite what the doorknobs of glory because all is going to be happy Sweet by and by. Think about it no more electric bills, high gas prices is payments or sickness or disease.

Tears and goodbyes or farewells grades in school don't person know you are changing the temperature but there's only one place, whether perfect weather that is in heaven, or Jesus is the Lamb for sinners, plaintiff from the foundations of the world is coming now is a coming lot of people got discouraged that all he should've come by now, but our text says no man knows the day or the hour but you know what God told you and I give you signs and signals the believer when base things begin to happen.

Look up, lift up your heads for your redemption draw with not doing what that means that the coming of the Lord is not going to be unexpected for God's people but is going to catch the world by surprise. If you're just now joining us. We are listening today to Dr. Tim, Todd and Mrs. titled what will you do if you are left behind.

What a powerful message.

This is, as our Lord Jesus used coming back again and we are to wake up, you should not be a surprise for those of us who have received him as Lord and Savior so we are going to Paul's for a short announcement, but please don't go away.

On the other side want to come back with more from Dr. Tim Todd and the Mrs. titled what would you do you you are left behind noble where you are tuned into the God first program you are listening to God first.

A name is Brian Thomason.

Today we are listening to a special message Dr. Hume Todd concerning the coming of our Lewis returns less regionally.attempts to the conclusion what will you do if you are left most people are not ready for the Lord's return. Right now, many people when you talk to them about the Lord soon return Dell stop and mock you make fun of the fact that is coming back at all. Have you noticed that. Did you know that's a sign that Jesus is ready to return because he said in second Peter chapter 3 verses three and four that in the last days there would be scoffers, walking after their own loss saying the promise of his coming. People are living as if the Lord were never going to return what kind of a signal does your lifespan. But the people that are lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, not what's gonna happen to the nation of Israel before the Lord returns as prescribed in three chapters in the Saco.

I'm not a sum it up. Ezekiel 37 3839.

Bible says that Israel will become a hunted annotated basic looked upon with suspicion standard into the four corners of the earth, but in the last days that Israel what neighbor started as a nation in one night and that the Jews would be gone back to Israel from all over the world can imagine a nation becoming a nation in one night. But as most of you know, it's already happened. May 15, 1948 United Nations brought Israel back in and get them full nation status and in just a matter of a few minutes, the British flag came down the Israeli flag went right back up and Israel was restored as a nation in one day and when this happened immediately. The Jews began leaving their jobs or careers. The professions of the world being drawn back to Israel less.

Some of them don't even know themselves what they were doing it.

Think about this. Jews that don't believe Jesus came the first time could have been doing things to fulfill Bible prophecy doctrine is coming the second time. What about the walls of communism coming down in Russia and what about the door opening up now in Cuba. What about the gospel going into all of the world through shortwave radio and by the way the Internet and by television, especially for shortwave radio. Did you know that according to the word of God. This is a sign that Jesus is ready to return right now. Matthew 24 verse 14. Here's what it says and this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness with all nations, and then shall the end come. The gospel is going in all the world. It's time for Jesus to return. Now what's gonna happen to those who are left behind. If your left behind. This is what you have to look forward to.

My prayer is that this morning. Every one of you listening to my voice that are not in right relationship with God, but you'll get your heart right with God so that you'll make the rapture but if you don't like the rector. This is what you had looked for and I've heard people say will brother talk whenever the rapture takes place. I know all have seven years to get my heart right with God. And so then I'll know what link the time I have.

But listen, if you can't live for Jesus right now how do you expect to die for and then and I really don't believe it'll be that easy. What are you going to do if you get left behind, you realize that is a result of your example that some of your family members will be left behind to because they'll think that what you're doing right and they were following what you did Debbie let what would you do if they put a gun to the head of your child and say if you don't take the mark of the beast, to kill your child then what would you do, why not just get your heart right with the Lord and miss all of that a man just what you have a look forward to your left behind.

The Bible says the sun will be darkened in that day the moon will turn to blood. The stars will fall out of the heavens capable run to the hills and run to the mountains and out for the rocks to push them the abomination of desolation. There's going to be about seven years of it, but I'm convinced Pastor Benny is going to be a time when the earth is gonna rock in real and the judgments of God go to be poured out, and the people who made fun of God and left the dock and stop the dock on television at the movie house and magazines that you have to respect Ted Turner the bill Mars and the Michael Moore's and everybody else who has shut there fast space and maybe nothing more that I can't afford that people use one of them their name Jesus Christ the King obtained the Lord of lords is going to be a time where battles will be fought, and blood will be shed that will come to the bridal bits of a horse that's a lot of blood throughout history.

Listen, I've stood overlooking the valley of Jezreel for the battle of Armageddon is gonna take place and the Bible teaches us that the vultures are going to come out of the air and plucked the flesh off of the dead bodies in the carcasses of those who've been killed in the battle of Armageddon.

Did you know that throughout the history of mankind.

Buzzards have consistently laid one bag and hatched one buzzard but in the past several years the buzzards have consistently been laying three and four eggs and the fencing 40 and four buzzards and I have been gathering over the Valley of Jezreel in swarms. Buzzards have more sense than most people because the iron reliable sources of informed me that the major newspapers around the world and up and down America are carrying what is called the second coming pipe. The largest typesetting ever engaged by newspapers more than 2 1/2 inches tall secular newspapers are holding this typesetting in this weather soon return of Jesus Christ. Can you imagine right now secular newspapers in Frankfurt Germany, Belgium, London, England, America Los Angeles times New York Times.

Several other papers in these newspapers carrying the big headlines Christ.

I don't know about you friend, but that is one newspaper. I don't intend to stick around to read 20 times.

Oh, the first Jesus here not for God.

Space travel. Are you ready to get on the space shuttle that will blow up. He's ready to come. Are you ready to go. Who's going to be left behind for groups of people. As far as I can tell. First of all those who know not God and obey not the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Second Thessalonians chapter 1 verses seven through nine under you who are troubled rest with us. When the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming fire taking vengeance on them. What's this that know not God and obey not the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his power.

Those who know and obey not the gospel are not going to make the rapture. If you love him is because you know him and if you know him, you will obey his word.

That means that your salvation has absolutely nothing to do with having your name in a truck roll book. Your salvation has everything to do with having an intimate marriage relationship of the Lord Jesus Christ, knowing him and if you know him, you will obey him. Who else is gonna be left behind. Hypocrites are not gonna make the rapture. Matthew 2315 wall and you, scribes and Pharisees, you compass sea and land to make one proselyte, but when you mating to make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves know what is a hypocrite, an individual that lives one light here at church, but then you live a different way outside of the church at home, at school, at work, let me put it this way. If you'll let me go home with you this afternoon and look in your refrigerator and look for your magazine rack know that the Internet sites that you go to listen to the same music that you listen to and watch the same television programs or movies that you watch all know whether or not you really been born again or if you're just living a hypocritical life. Hypocrites are not gonna make it to heaven. Who else is going to be left behind. This is frightening. Many religious leaders will not make it to heaven.

Matthew seven 2122 and 23 describes this group.

Not everyone who says Lord Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my father which is in heaven.

Many will come in a man that dance I Lord that we not prophesied in my name and in my name cast out devils that we not done many wonderful works, then will I profess into them. I never knew you depart from me, you workers of iniquity. I not say because I'm a preacher I'm saved because I have a Savior and I know Jesus and I love him well sister to be left behind one more group and I close lukewarm churchgoers are not going to heaven. Revelation chapter 3 the seven churches of Asia, believed by most Bible scholars as being the seven church ages throughout history symbolic of the seven church a search throughout history, finishing up with the last tour takes the church age that were in right now is what it says.

Revelation chapter 3 verses 14 through 17 it says and under the angel of the church.

Angela translated Pastor of the Church of the Laodiceans write baseline saved by a man, the faithful, the true witness in the beginning of the creation of God.

I know thy works of art neither cold or hot.

I bought that thou art cold or hot.

So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot hobble spewed me out of my mouth is pretty strong right there because now say is I am rich and increased with goods, and have need of nothing, and knowest not that thou art wretched, miserable, poor line and make it. Doesn't that a powerful outpouring of what God is saying here the word spew in that passage of Scripture comes from the Greek word for we got word vomit. What the Lord is saying is if you're lukewarm. It makes God sick.

Are we making God sick with the lukewarm, lethargic, apathetically indifferent attitude that is so prevalent in so many of our churches today. I believe we are disabled brother talk. I'm not lukewarm fine.if you're not, but I think it's fair and important for us to take a spiritual examination. It's a multiple-choice question.

Your three choices are hot, cold and lukewarm is not fair.

What about your daily prayer life and devotion time right now.

Would you say that it's hot, cold or lukewarm. What about your soul winners fire is hot, cold or lukewarm.

What about your church attendance at your giving and your tithing. What about the way that you worship God, is it hot is it cold or is it lukewarm some of you sitting here would be able to say brother taught him hot on fire and all of those errors find out if you can say that some of you sitting here would have to say brother taught I'm cold and one or more those errors in my life but I would venture to say that as I stand here that about 75 to 80% of you sitting here would have to say that I'm lukewarm in one or more of those areas, I'm not really hot in my daily prayer life and devotion time in God's word but I'm not cold I'm just lukewarm not really hot. A soul winner, but I'm not called lukewarm with my busy work schedule and with school and all of the things I've got going on with my family. I'm not really hot in my church attendance, but I'm not called lukewarm. Matthew 25, there were 10 burgeoned's one is a virgin. A good girl all to know more.

Good girls right at all to numb worksite.

Only five of those virgins had their lamps trimmed in bright with the oil which is symbolic of the spirit of God. What about you, would you say that you are hot, cold or lukewarm. Jesus is ready to come. What a powerful message from Dr. Tim Todd Wood will you do if you are left behind. It is my prayer that this message has inspired you. If you have already received Jesus. If you are truly born again that you are now excited about his return that you are looking forward to the coming of our great Lord because as Dr. Todd said we have a Savior and I love you and I am looking forward to that day when I will see him face-to-face the day when the trumpet will sound, there will be a shout from heaven, from the Archangel, the Bible says will be called up to meet the Lord in the air, we shall forever be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.

I am looking forward to that day and for those who have not received Jesus Christ, I urge you today to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, because he is coming back again. Don't be like those in the days of Noah, who scoffed and mocked and laughed until it was too late in the parish in the flood, the day of judgment is coming. Our team is coming back to rule and reign. We are looking forward to it and we are excited about. I want to encourage you to share the message with your friends share the message with your family, that our Lord Jesus is coming all of your problems will instantly come to when you all the day when our Lord catches us up to meet him in the air, we shall forever be with our Lord as Dr. Todd said what a day that will be we will see him face-to-face.

We can give praise and adoration to our Lewis Savior Jesus Christ for all of eternity waffles. I want to thank you for tuning me and we are all out of time this week but please come back next week and join us as we continue to encourage you to put God first, while viewing life through the window of the Bible until the end.
